Brendan Rodgers is expected to field a first team squad for the game on 14 May.

It will be the first time the sides have met in 32 years, when Ian Rush scored for the Reds in a 1-1 draw at Milltown in Dublin in November 1982.

"I played in that game against Shamrock Rovers over three decades ago and I remember scoring that goal," Rush told the Liverpool website.

"It'll be great to play them again and this time hopefully we'll come away with a win."

Shamrock Rovers chairman Jonathan Roche said he is "delighted" and added that the game will be a "great occasion" for the club's players, supporters and for Irish fans of Liverpool.

"It will see two clubs with strong histories of success and great fans face each other in what should be an entertaining game of football and a great occasion," he said.

"It will be a great game for our players to be involved in and also a good day out for our fans and Irish supporters of Liverpool, many of whom are also SSE Airtricity League supporters."

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday 28 March via Ticketmaster and the FAI website.

A spokesperson for Liverpool added: "Liverpool FC will field a first team squad barring any injuries or selection for national team duty for the upcoming World Cup."
